Life is so fragile

Life is so fragile. Life can slip away in the twinkling of a eye. We need to treat people like it is the last time we are ever going to see or speak to them. I have friends that have lost love ones to sudden and fatal heart attacks. I have friends that have lost loves ones in auto accidents. They all say the same thing, "I wish I had known I would have"..... Learn from their tragedy, tell your family, friends, and neighbors how you feel each and everyday. You never know if it is the last time you get the chance to communicate with your love one.

Food for thought:

Ephesians 4:32 (KJV)
32. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

There is hope after death if you have been born again.

John 14:1-4
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.

This is for believers who have died.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (NIV)
13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
